Donkey Punch

November 26, 2008



I’m going to enjoy being a resident of Casacadia.

So Michael Mukasey was giving a speech at the Federalist Society and one of my homeboys called him out:

After listening to Mukasey defend the Bush administration’s counterterrorism policies — its detainment practices at Guantánamo Bay, its interpretation of the Geneva Conventions’ reach — Sanders stood and shouted “Tyrant! You are a tyrant!”

Okay, he’s not my homeboy, but he is a State Supreme Court justice in Washington State.

I’d like to think that his outburst forced Mukasey to temporarily ascend from the reptile brain he normally thinks with to the human brain that most people (those with an ounce of compassion in their bodies) use to think. The cognitive dissonance caused by actually feeling compassion for a tiny moment started a harmonic resonance which made AG Michael Mukasey collapse.

Well done, Justice Sanders!



  1. OMG, I had no idea that’s what happened. Is there any way to get Sanders in an audience where Bush is speaking? Maybe his voice has the power to make assholes keel over.

  2. We can hope, can’t we?

  3. Isn’t your Colonel Justice Sanders some sort of libertarian dingbat? Sez so in R. Edroso’s recent Village Voice posting.

    Hey, where’s the preview?

  4. I think, in the aftermath of the Bush administration, that libertarians are our allies.
